In his October newsletter, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson has a pretty clear message: Because of gay rights, America is at risk of joining Pompeii and Ancient Rome in the ranks of societies “so corrupted by evil that divine judgment eventually destroys them.”
“We have not yet reached the depravity of Sodom and Gomorrah, but that appears to be where we are headed,” Dobson warns, citing the Supreme Court’s decision striking down “sodomy” laws and subsequent lower court decisions preventing marriage discrimination.
“His justice will prevail when unrestrained lust, violence, perversion, and other forms of grievous sin have run their course,” Dobson declares.
Modernists, libertarians and atheists today recognize no condemnation of sexual perversion in the Bible. However, this historical account illustrates how God views it. The outrageous behavior of the wicked men of Sodom and Gomorrah sealed their doom. Fire and brimstone fell from the sky on both cities and utterly destroyed them. Henceforth, men who commit homosexual acts have been called “Sodomites,” although that term has become politically offensive since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized and protected sexual perversion.
The story of Abraham and Lot also illustrates how entire societies can become so corrupted by evil that divine judgment eventually destroys them, or they simply fade away. It happened to the people of Greece, Rome, Pompeii and other cities and cultures where wickedness became the order of the day. One thing is certain. God is the holy Sovereign Lord of all heaven and earth, and He will not be mocked. His justice will prevail when unrestrained lust, violence, perversion, and other forms of grievous sin have run their course.
Why have I chosen to recount this biblical story from so long ago? Because I am convinced that America and other Western Nations are sliding in the same direction. We have not yet reached the depravity of Sodom and Gomorrah, but that appears to be where we are headed. Judge Robert Bork, the brilliant jurist who was shamefully denied a seat on the Supreme Court, wrote a book about this danger 18 years ago. It was titled, Slouching Towards Gomorrah. I think he had it right.
Many influential men and women of the judiciary are leading us toward perdition. One of them is Judge Richard Posner, a federal judge sitting on the Seventh U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He became a hero of the pro-gay marriage community by helping to “discover” a provision in the Constitution that laid the foundation for legalizing same-sex marriage. The American people in thirty-one states voted that their Constitutions would henceforth define marriage as being exclusively between one man and one woman. Posner and other imperious judges and Justices had a better idea. They simply overrode the will of the people and issued “court made law.” Whatever happened to Lincoln’s speech at Gettysburg in which he said this government is designed to be “Of the people, for the people, and by the people?” It’s no longer true.
I will tell you personally the preservation of the family is the Cause for which I was born. I knew it when I was 20 years old. Today, I have a continuing, unrelenting burden for today’s children and young adults who are being warped and twisted by those who would “fundamentally change” the world in which they are growing up. Everything we have known and valued is being swept away.
Dobson also quotes at length from the virulently anti-gay group Mass Resistance to warn parents of “LGBT propaganda” in schools: “Well, how about it, parents? Are you willing to send your children off to a public school that is required by law to teach LBGT propaganda to students? I pray not.”
Ex-gay activist Linda Wall, who has launched a new Religious Right group called Virginia Mass Resistance, promoted her organization in a Saturday interview with “Mission America” host Linda Harvey.
Wall described to Harvey her own experience of being “seduced” into homosexuality, which she said all started with “a glass of wine and marijuana.”
“It was as if it was an instant addiction as to a drug,” she said.
Wall: So if you’re not born with a gay gene, then you have to be seduced or lured into it, which is an epidemic. Or I call it the ‘runaway train in America’ because I was minding my own heterosexual, college co-ed life when an older woman seduced me into it.
Harvey: How does that happen? Tell me a little bit, without too much detail.
Wall: This is way back, 33 years ago or more, she started flirting with me. I just took it to be a friendship that she was trying to build with me. I was raised in rural Virginia, I’ve never met a homosexual, a person who claimed to be a homosexual, and then in time I realized that there was more to this and I was intrigued and so under the influence of a glass of wine and marijuana, I decided one night to explore and try this. It was as if it was an instant addiction as to a drug and for ten years almost I wanted to get out of it and could not. Praise the Lord I realized that if it could be done it would be done by Jesus Christ, the one who had healed lepers and even raised the dead.
Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, is angry that President Obama isn’t doing enough to combat the spread of Ebola. He is also angry that Obama is sending U.S. troops on a relief mission to combat the spread of Ebola.
In an interview with the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg and Chris Gacek last week, Farenthold appeared to be unaware that the U.S. military has a long record of working in disaster response and relief missions and warned that sending U.S. troops to help confront the crisis could exacerbate the outbreak.
“Can you imagine bringing this disease back to the tight confines of a military base?” he asked.
“The military is designed and set up and trained to protect this country with guns and bombs, not to protect this country from disease,” he said. “If somebody wanted to protect this country by fighting disease in Africa, they could’ve joined the Peace Corps or USAID or Doctors Without Borders. We’re using the military for something that they weren’t designed for and I think putting our soldiers in an unnecessarily risky position.”
Farenthold then accused the Obama administration of trying to politicize the Ebola outbreak, telling listeners that they can’t trust government officials to handle Ebola because of Obamacare and Benghazi: “My major concern is that every piece of evidence that I’ve seem indicates that the Obama administration is more interested in politics than good health policy. I’m also concerned that we cannot believe the Obama administration, there’s a history of this administration misleading us from ‘if you like your health care insurance you can keep it’ to ‘Benghazi attacks were caused by a YouTube video’ to ‘we accidentally lost Lois Lerner’s email.’ The government is not being straight with us.”
On a "Believer's Voice of Victory" program set to air on Wednesday, Kenneth Copeland and David Barton declared that it was immoral for any Christian not to vote for anti-abortion candidates because even refusing to vote "is that same as casting your vote for evil."
Copeland made the argument that Christians cannot ever vote for a pro-choice candidate because when you cast your vote for a candidate, you are endorsing every position that candidate holds. As such, Christians cannot support a candidate that is "on the death side," Copeland said, warning that anyone who does will be held accountable by God as an accomplice to murder.
"This is serious business, man," Copeland declared and Barton was entirely in agreement, adding his own warning that those who do not vote candidates who oppose abortion rights will be held just as accountable as those who vote for pro-choice ones.
Not voting for anti-abortion candidates "keeps you from being on the life platform," Barton said. "There is only one place of life, any place else except that is not life. There's not a third choice. If you do nothing, you have not chosen life ... If you choose not to vote, that's the same as casting your vote for evil":
On his “Trunews” radio program last week, right-wing conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles argued that American voters are now powerless against the Obama administration, warning his listeners that, regardless of how the midterm elections play out, they should anticipate the “iron fist of tyranny” from the “mac daddy” president as he tries to maintain political power.
“If Barry Soetoro’s socialist Democrats win, against all odds and common sense and history, we’ll know that America’s elections are rigged,” he said. “On the other hand, if the mac daddy socialist Democratic party gets an old-fashioned thumping at the polls, it still doesn’t matter: Mr. Obama will simply crack down on all opposition, use government surveillance agencies to spy on his opponents, he’ll continue to issue presidential decrees and ignore the Congress, and rule the country like a dictator. Nothing’s going change, except that he’s really going to step it up as a dictator.”
After attacking Focus on the Family for criticizing his remarks on Ebola, Wiles warned his fellow Religious Right activists that “persecution of the true Christian church will be carried out by America’s ‘gaystapo’ under the direction of America’s first gay president, Barry Soetoro.”
Claiming to have received a message from God, Wiles then prophesied the impending doom that will befall the country as punishment for being in apparent “outright rebellion against God,” otherwise known as advancing LGBT equality: “We’ve been taken over by homosexuals and sodomites, and lesbians and transvestites, and a bunch of communists and socialists and atheists and God-haters. And this country is about to be judged.”
“If you’re here when this judgment strikes, you’re going to be consumed,” he said. “The Lord has told me vast numbers are going to be consumed and the survivors will be slaves. That is the future that is facing America if this country does not repent and the time is ticking away.”
Minnesota activist and Michele Bachmann pal Bradlee Dean reacted on his radio show Saturday to the incident in Houston in which a group of Religious Right activists sued the city over an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance and a number of pastors who had helped collect signatures to repeal the bill received subpoenas.
Dean declared that the Houston hubbub was “a prime example” of his claim that “the homosexual agenda is there to upend your sovereignty.”
He argued that Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who is a lesbian, backed the nondiscrimination law in order “to attack the church that was calling her out for her crimes against nature.”
Later in the program, he contended that openly gay elected officials and executive branch appointees are destroying the country: “God didn’t give us a right to institute, friends, a bunch of homosexuals into federal government in this country.”
He also argued for impeaching Obama’s “criminal administration,” which he said is “attempting to implement Sharia law.”
Right-wing televangelist Kenneth Copeland spoke with pseudo-historian David Barton this week for another series of broadcasts designed to encourage conservative Christians to vote in the upcoming election.
On a program scheduled to air tomorrow, Copeland told Barton that, prior to the last presidential election, God had told him that he would "like the way this election turns out," which caused a lot of confusion for Copeland given that President Obama was re-elected. Copeland said that he recently asked God what He meant by this and learned that it was all part of God's plan to sour America on "progressive socialism."
"At the time of this last presidential election, very, very few people in this country had any idea what progressive socialism was," Copeland said, asserting that God told him that He allowed Obama to be re-elected because "without a proper diagnosis, it's very difficult to treat and receive healing from a sickness or disease."
The Obama administration's "agenda to push progressive socialism with everything they got," Copeland said, has now allowed America to "get a diagnosis of what progressive socialism is and how it doesn't work ... and now we know why we don't want it":
Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman isn’t giving up on his dream of removing President Obama from office through a massive uprising (or military coup), writing in his Friday column for WorldNetDaily that “Revolution is upon us!”
Klayman writes that Obama’s handling of the Ebola epidemic is another reason to revolt, warning that “Obama has left the door open to his African brothers, putting the interests of fellow blacks, with whom he feels a kinship, ahead of others,” which he says is part of the president’s “reverse discrimination” against white people.
“The moral to this unfolding tragedy, coupled with a spate of terrorist attacks in Canada and New York City this week, is that Obama and his policies favor those with whom he most identifies – blacks and Muslims – at the expense of all of us,” he added. “Obama has two more years left – that is, if he leaves office voluntarily – to work even more destructive actions, calculated to harm this nation, which he obviously loathes.”
Rather than prudently implementing a travel ban for visitors from Liberia and West Africa, Obama has left the door open to his African brothers, putting the interests of fellow blacks, with whom he feels a kinship, ahead of others. This, or course, has been true of Obama in many instances during his administration. It is a form of de facto reverse discrimination, as well as a reckless means to further biological terrorism, as I have recently charged in a complaint I filed a few weeks ago against the president and his enablers at the CDC. (See www.freedomwatchusa.org.) The purpose of this case is to get a court to order that further travel from Liberia and West Africa stop.
But instead of banning travel, Obama and his CDC hacks have now reportedly implemented a so-called self-screening program that relies of Liberian and West African travelers who pass through the designated five American airports to voluntarily report whether, once they enter the United States, they develop Ebola symptoms. At this point, of course, the deadly virus already could have been spread.
The moral to this unfolding tragedy, coupled with a spate of terrorist attacks in Canada and New York City this week, is that Obama and his policies favor those with whom he most identifies – blacks and Muslims – at the expense of all of us. For Obama has two more years left – that is, if he leaves office voluntarily – to work even more destructive actions, calculated to harm this nation, which he obviously loathes.
I usually end my columns with a call to action to legally remove Obama from office. Today will be no exception. Time is short before all is lost! Our Founding Fathers knew when to act, and we can do no less if the nation is to survive. But we cannot put our eggs into a proverbial Republican basket. Even if the Grand Old Party regains total control of Congress by controlling both houses – the Senate as well as the House of Representatives – they have shown an inability and, to be more exact, a lack of desire to truly confront Obama. What interests our career politicians more than the well-being of our country is their own retention of power and accumulation of personal wealth. Washington, D.C., is rich and flush with cash, and there is a big pie to divvy up. There’s no time to waste to really obtaining justice for We the People and restoring freedom to our shores.
Bottom line: Revolution is upon us! In the words of Patrick Henry, “Give me liberty or give me death!”
Back in 2011, Georgia pastor and GOP politician Jody Hice appeared on the End Times radio broadcast “Trunews” to discuss the Penn State abuse scandal, which he blamed on the end of government-organized school prayer.
Hice, who is now the GOP nominee for the Republican-leaning U.S. House seat being vacated by far-right Rep. Paul Broun, told host Rick Wiles that the Penn State scandal was a result of America having “kicked the Bible out of schools and then prayer out of schools. We’ve just basically been going downhill since then and you get what you get [when] you kick God out.”
Hice has similarly claimed that the Aurora and Virginia Tech massacres were the fault of evolution and abortion rights and tied the Sandy Hook shooting to the separation of church and state.
Joel Gilbert, creator of last year’s hit film “Dreams From My Real Father” (which made the case that President Obama’s was lying about his communist genetics) is out with a new film, this one making the case that “Barack Obama is the real life Wizard of Oz.”
Unsurprisingly, Alex Jones is quite taken with Gilbert’s new movie, and welcomed the filmmaker onto his Infowars program last week to discuss the various ways in which they believe liberals are destroying America. One of those ways, it turns out, is the push for reforming marijuana laws, which Jones said that he actually supports but also thinks is a liberal plot to keep people “stunned and stumbling around” and voting for Democrats.
“Well certainly the progressives will use anything, any tool, anything that comes up to exert total control,” Gilbert agreed. “The more the progressives can promote anything that keeps people from focusing on their radical agenda, the more they’ll get behind it.”
